Heat stress is a major risk when temperatures rise and especially for vulnerable, elderly or unwell people receiving hospital treatment. For one London hospital, an ICS Cool Energy hire solution was the fast, convenient and affordable means of making the patient environment more comfortable in the hot summer.
Summer in the city was delivering uncomfortable levels of heat for patients at a London hospital, with 15 rooms needing extra cooling to restore comfort levels to a healthier level.
As a busy 24/7 operation and with temperatures continuing to rise, the hospital’s admin and support services manager called in ICS Cool Energy hire team to provide fast action.
The team was on site immediately, recommending a 4.4kW air cooling unit for each room which also features heating and dehumidification from one lightweight, quiet and compact unit – making them an unobtrusive solution.
With minimal maintenance thanks to a self evaporating condensate system, the heat rejection hose is easy to vent out of the room.
- Fast and effective spot cooling

- Easy ‘plug in and go’ operation

Russ Baker, Sales Director for ICS Cool energy’s hire division said
